About me

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor practising in Macclesfield (close to the town centre) where I offer confidential non-judgemental counselling to individuals.

During my 16+ years qualification I  have worked with people of all ages and covering a range of issues, including relationship difficulties, anxiety and depression, anger, low self esteem; lloss of confidence or that sense of feeling "stuck" and unable to move on.

I trained and qualified (2001) as an Integrative Person Centred Counsellor and my approach to counselling is "non-directive", and, although advice is not given it is my sincere aim to create and develop a constructive dialogue between us.

People decide to seek counselling for different reasons in difficult and challenging times in their lives or perhaps when feeling isolated or alone.  It is during these times that counselling can help us to find a way through by sharing and exploring such concerns in a safe and non-judgemental space.  Counselling offers a place where we can explore our thinking and feelings and to try to make sense of them, and, this in turn can enable us to make the necessary changes to enable us to live in a way that is more satisfying and resourceful.

On the basis that we have different needs it is my aim to tailor the number of sessions to each individual.

To arrange an appointment or to find out more you can telephone me on 01625 433235 or alternatively email me via this website.
